I have been copying DVD's for about 3 months. I have a region 2 DVD that has me stumped. I have tried DVD Decrypter, SmartRipper, and DVD Shrink. All get stuck at the layer switch point. I tried telling DVD Decrypter to ignore errors, but the ripped vob file is garbage from that point on. I posted this in the newbie's forum first and had no luck. The DVD has a momentary freeze at that point when played on my standalone player, but PowerDVD bombs if I play it on my computer. I have replaced the DVD, and complained to the manufacturer that it wouldn't play on my computer. He agrees the pause is there, but there is nothing to be done about it. I ripped in file mode, and skipped that file when I had the problem, then tried to rip only that file later. It didn't help. It is an eposodic DVD, Coupling season 3, and the problem is right in the middle of episode 4. Is there any ripping software that can handle this problem?
